In Italy I graduated in Humanities at the Faculty of Letters, with Art History and Italian Literature as prominent subjects.
My graduation thesis was on the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch and the Scandinavian theatre, for which I got 110/110 cum laude, i.e. the highest grade at the Italian university.
In 2003 I got a scholarship from The Research Council of Norway, which gave me the opportunity to fulfil a stimulating research project at the Munch Museum in Oslo. Some yers later I wrote an article which has been published by the review "Studi Nordici".
